Oil prices have fallen, impacting economies across the region and the world. The recent succession in Saudi Arabia raises questions about the outlook for this key U.S. ally. With all of these factors in play, the outlook for 2015 is indeed uncertain.

It will affect about 60,000 homes, with roughly a third of them occupied by owners who are behind on their property taxes. City officials are trying to work with them -- they recently reassessed properties to lower the tax rates -- but officials say tens of thousands of people have yet to make any payments, and may be forced out of their homes and onto the streets.
